Call to Worship

Revelation 15:3-4(ESV)

 

Great and amazing are your deeds, O Lord God the Almighty! Just and true are your ways, O King of the nations! Who will not fear, O Lord, and glorify your name? For you alone are holy. All nations will come and worship you, for your righteous acts have been revealed.

Holy, Holy, Holy 

 

Holy, holy, holy,

Lord God Almighty!

Early in the morning

our song shall rise to Thee

Holy holy, holy,

merciful and mighty

God in Three Persons, blessed Trinity

 

Holy, holy, holy!

All the saints adore Thee

Casting down their golden crowns

around the glassy sea

Cherubim and seraphim

falling down before Thee

Who wert and art and

evermore shalt be.

 

Holy, holy, holy!

Though the darkness hide Thee

Though the eye of sinful man

Thy glory may not see

Only Thou art holy

there is none beside Thee

Perfect in power, in love, and purity.

 

Holy, holy, holy!

Lord God Almighty!

All Thy works shall praise Thy name

in earth and sky and sea.

Holy, holy, holy,

merciful and mighty!

God in Three Persons, blessed Trinity!

Worshiping God by Confessing Our Sins

  

Most holy and merciful Father,
we confess to you and to one another,
that we have sinned against you
by what we have done and by what we have left undone
We have not loved you with our whole heart and mind and strength.
We have not fully loved our neighbors as ourselves.
We have not always had in us the mind of Christ.
You alone know how often we have grieved you by wasting your gifts,

by wandering from your ways.
Forgive us, most merciful Father; and free us from our sin.
Renew in us the grace and strength of your Holy Spirit, for the sake of Jesus Christ your Son our Savior.

Amen.

Worshiping God by Confessing Our Hope

For by grace we have been saved through faith. And this is not our own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.  For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

Before the Throne of God Above

 

 Before the throne of God above,

I have a strong and perfect plea
A great High Priest whose name is Love,

who ever lives and pleads for me
My name is graven on His hands,

My name is written on His heart
I know that while in heav'n He stands,

no tongue can bid me thence depart
no tongue can bid me thence depart

 

 When Satan tempts me to despair

and tells me of the guilt within
Upward I look and see Him there,

who made an end of all my sin
Because the sinless Savior died,

my sinful soul is counted free
For God the Just is satisfied

to look on Him and pardon me
to look on Him and pardon me

 

 Behold Him there the Risen Lamb!

My perfect spotless Righteousness
The great unchangeable I Am,

the King of Glory and of grace
One with Himself I cannot die,

my soul is purchased by His blood
My life is hid with Christ on high,

with Christ my Savior and my God
with Christ my Savior and my God

Worshiping God by Hearing His Word

Ephesians 4:1-16(ESV)

Series: Unity: Out of Many, One

Sermon: Unity in Progress

 

I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit-- just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call--  one Lord, one faith, one baptism,  one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.  But grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of Christ's gift.  Therefore it says, "When he ascended on high he led a host of captives, and he gave gifts to men."  (In saying, "He ascended," what does it mean but that he had also descended into the lower regions, the earth?  He who descended is the one who also ascended far above all the heavens, that he might fill all things.)  And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes.  Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ,  from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.

The ____________ of unity in the church is a ____________.

 

 

This process was initiated and is overseen by ____________ ____________.

 

 

Whether we realize it or not, Christians ____________ ____________ in Christ by the Spirit.

 

 

At the same time, we are also called to be ____________ to ____________ that unity and to ____________ ____________ for its mature and complete ____________.

 

 

So let’s ____________ ____________ in the process of pursuing the fullness of our unity in Christ.

Bond of Peace

One Lord, one faith, one baptism,

 one God and Father of all!

 There is one body, there is one Spirit,

 there is one hope to which we are called.

 

 One bought with one sacrifice

 By Christ, our Savior and King!

 United to Him, we are His body;

 Fullness of Him, who fills everything.

 

 Triune God, three yet one,

 Perfect God of unity,

 Unify us in the bond of peace.

 

 We’re called to be likeminded,

 Humble, loving, and true,

 As one in spirit, and one in purpose,

 As those whom God created anew!

 

 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,

 one God and Father of all!

 There is one body, there is one Spirit,

 there is one hope to which we are called.

 

 Triune God, three yet one,

 Perfect God of unity,

 Unify us in the bond of peace.
